Earlier today, ONE Championship released their Top 5 Bouts of Q3 in 2019, featuring three of the UK’s best athletes currently signed to the World’s premier martial arts promotion.
Jonathan Haggerty vs Rodtang Jitmuangnon
The bout lived up to all the hype and the bout could have gone either way, but it was the knockdown from Rodtang that ultimately won him the championship.
Bangpleenoi vs Liam Nolan
Nolan started off well with some heavy boxing combinations and low-kicks. The bout went the distance and was extremely close to call, but the WMC World Champion Bangpleenoi got the nod form the judges.
Santino Verbeek vs Juan Cervantes
After a shakey start, taking an eight-count from a heavy right hand in the first round, Juan started to turn things round in the second with his boxing and low-kicks.
In the third round, knowing he’d need a knock-down to stand a change of winning, Juan released a relentless barrage of attacks, landing a sensational jumping knee which would’ve knocked most opponents down, but the Dutchman stayed on his feet and survived the round to take a majority decision.
